NIT – Saturday is National Pig Day.

Created by a Texas art teacher in 1972, National Pig Day celebrates one of the smartest domesticated creatures on the planet, the pig. Falling annually on March 1, it is marked with pig-focused events at zoos and animal parks throughout the United States.

According to PETA, pigs are “extremely social”, are “smarter than dogs” and “should be your friend, not your food.”

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey said Saturday that “March 1 is National Pig Day! Kinda makes it National Iowa Day. 21 million pigs celebrating in Iowa.”
